The Ricoh Shotmaster Dual is a relatively uncommon but nicely designed dual-lens 35mm film point-and-shoot from the late 1980s. We weren't able to locate an instruction manual but we found it very simple and intuitive while testing this camera and we were very pleased with the photos it took. Here's Popular Photography's writeup from May 1989:

The Shotmaster Dual features motorized shifting from its four-element 35mm f/3.5 lens configuration to the eight-element 70mm f/6.6 position; programmed shutter with speeds from I to 1/500 sec; and a 23-step infrared autofocusing system operating from 3 feet to infinity. At closer distances the green AF viewfinder LED blinks and the shutter locks.
An LCD panel atop the camera shows correct film load and advance, film counter, film rewind and completion, flash charging indicator, and battery condition.
Other features are single- or two-shot self-timer. DX film-speed range of ISO 64-3200. automatically activating flash for low- and backlight situations, flash range to 7 feet in telephoto position and to 14 feet in wide-angle with ISO 100 film, and power from a 6-volt lithium battery.

This camera requires a 6v CR-P2 lithium battery (available as an option). 

Condition notes
The camera was tested with a battery and film installed and performed well (the film was not developed). The camera's aesthetic condition is very good as well (see photos) with only minor wear on the body.
